The Chicago Bulls and Derrick Rose should forget about this season

It’s been a lost season for Derrick Rose and the Bulls.

With only eight games left in the regular season, shelved Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose remains “out indefinitely” despite being cleared to play on March 8.

The 24-year-old Rose, a three-time NBA All-Star who became the youngest man to ever earn the Most Valuable Player award in 2011, suffered a torn ACL in his left knee last April during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals series against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Long expected to reemerge at roughly the All-Star break, Rose, who Chicago took out of the University of Memphis with the first pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, has been participating in full contact practices for weeks.

Lagging behind the Pacers for supremacy in the Eastern Conference Central Division with a decent record of 41-33, the Bulls can’t genuinely compete with the Miami Heat, New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets or Indiana sans a blooming Rose.

Incredibly talented and likable, Rose should now forget about performing alongside solid ballplayers Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah when the playoffs commence on April 20.

Finally realizing the 2012-2013 campaign has been a bust, the Chicago Bulls and Derrick Rose need to look forward to the autumn.
